You will find your ideal career when you deepen your self-knowledge, strike the right balance between intuition and intellect, and learn to distinguish the call of your spirit from the fear-based urgings of your ego. When you are aligned with Spirit and long to do meaningful work, the world is in need of whatever it is you need to do.
To find our calling is to find the intersection between our own deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger.
Until you satisfy your soul’s longing for right livelihood, there will be a giant work-shaped piece missing from the jigsaw puzzle of your life.
The pitcher cries for water to carry and a person for work that is real.
Ultimately, you must follow your heart. Listen closely and you will find that it beats in concert with the heart of all creation.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Dr. Howard Thurman
